Although used primarily for rugby union in winter and cricket in summer, it has hosted rugby league and soccer matches. In 2011 it hosted pool games, two quarter-finals, both semi-finals and the final of Rugby World Cup 2011. In doing so it became the first stadium in the world to host two Rugby World Cup Finals, having held the inaugural final in 1987. It has been selected as a venue for the 2015 Cricket World Cup, which will be jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand.
